the ink between your teeth, streaming
brick crust around the corners
salve and bandage, Hermes attend
mauve eyes, split lip, chipped tooth.
fight back the tears, speak
as Tiresias can, do no wrong you
are the Sappho's of this world, the dreamers, the Daedalus, the stars. in space
they can see your eyes shine worlds beyond dreaming
Kleio comes to you soft as sheets.
you are the Orpheus, broke from song
to coax tears before Hades, Persephone weeps
you are Atlanta, swift of foot, speeding onwards
you leap beyond their scorn
speak not of words, of sticks,
of stones torn long from graceless fingers, no
sing loud Cassandra, your future is bright
and Eris cannot touch you between these shelves.

we rolled in fields burnt brown by cold, so strong
my skin papered with its stinging
howl eyes narrow, tawny hair shivers
bite chapped parchment shaking in leather.
you are a creature
of moments, of sunshine in winter, bright gold
the way the wind glints frozen. your skin
a twisting furnace of heat, spring forward
and this is Us; the bloodless and the wolf, stealing heat you spill
the shared hush of laughter and crunch predators
stalking the sheeple, we speak to the edge
where adrenalin rush meets madness.
birds fall from blackbone branches like leaves leaving
the empty cages abandoned. I remember
your skin cracked white, ice in the water leaking blood dark at the crevices. hand
over hand, staining bark with lost red,
this is the space we inhabit, together:
you, cloud-borne, drinking irradiance
and the observer in a shroud of latticed shadow.
I'm up for criticism, compliments, whatever. Improvement is always a welcome change. xD And thanks for viewing! ^.^;
Don't steal. >.>
It's true. I was skimming through my journal titles and a larger-than-excusable amount have ellipses. I'm attempting to rectify this gradually.
So. I am a) exhausted b) ill c) incredibly busy for no apparent reason and d) fretting about everything and anything.
Basically, nothing new. But I am heading off to college in a few, buying lots of dorm things, blah blah blah. Tired and busy and etc. I'm glad of an opportunity to be rid of certain people, will miss others dearly. This is the sad sob story of my life. (Note the deep seated sense of irony and self-loathing in that.) Okay, no, that's unfair. I'm just bored with the waiting game. It's been a lot of laundry and shopping and packing and everything I hate. I haven't written anything in weeks, I've been too tired and too uninspired. Looking and dust and cleaning things does that to a person. I feel like shit.
On the bright side, that means I've been doing a lot more art. Trying new things. I should be posting in droves once I get the motivation to. I know, promises promises. Typical, right?
TL;DR - Hello, this is an update stating more of the usual. This is the insomniac writer/artist telling you that she is stuck in a waiting game for the foreseeable week or two. Remember to vote, we don't want Mittens running this country.
That's All, Folks!
Edit: WAIT no I'm a fucking liar I went to Governor's Ball and it was fucking amazing. I will see if there are any post-worthy pictures.
2nd Edit: Looking at Arthur Rackham's work makes me want to cry from envy and simultaneously work harder than I ever have in my life.
Hey - Kath here. About me? Hrm.
I do a lot of different stuff - novels, short stories, poems, amateur photography, traditional/digital art... I pretty much jump from field to field depending on my inspiration xD. I think the best part about dA is it's ability to connect artists all over the world. I love that I can post a picture and someone from India can critique it. ^.^;
